2017 sees Techno on the move again, while the underground electronic music vinyl-only boom represents the opposite of commercial dance music’s insatiable drive for success and exposure. With so much music released every day, it can be a challenge to pick out a banging track. Below are the ten tracks I have picked out as standouts for the month of August 2017.
- PHAZE DEE/MIKE SHARON/YUSUKE YAMAMOTO/GEMIL/LCS – Beautiful Chaos No 3
- WADE, Rick – Guardian Of Forever
- SWING, John/EMG – Relative 020
- GRAD U – Redscale 09
- DILATED PUPILS – DPBEATS 002
- ABER, Shlomi/JAM/TRUNCATE/SKUDGE – 10 Years Of Be As One Part 1
- MATRIXXMAN/SETAOC MASS – Pitch Black
- ANDREASSON, Daniel – Komfort
- TYRELL, Alden/BEN SIMS- More Real Wild Trax
- BLUE HOUR/MARK BROOM/SUBSTANCE/PANGAEA/VC 118A – Blue Hour Remixed 2
Before I go, I do suggest you support the artists whose music I weave together, by buying their music directly – all of my mixes have full track listings so you can support the artists by purchasing the tracks individually – you can listen & purchase tracks directly on Mixcloud or Juno Download

Since You’re Here …
… I have a small favour to ask. Did you know it can take me up to 8 hours to curate, master, edit, upload and share my weekly podcasts? That’s a full day of work but I am happy to share my vinyl collection with audiences.
Unfortunately I am also an adult, and maintaining my gear, turntables and records do carry expenses. So I have setup my virtual tip jar searching for a coffee. I didn’t setup a Patreon page to make a living, or get rich, rather, I’ve setup my Patreon with the intention of using it as a channel to reach out to my followers and fans.
If making a recurring donation on Patreon is too much of a long term commitment, perhaps buying me a coffee suits your budget. Click here to donate a few dollars using Paypal, otherwise, my future would be much more secure if you were to become a Patron by clicking the orange button below.
